Walked to Kukui's from our room at Marriott. Had several breakfasts and dinners. Food was very good and staff was friendly and accomodating. Especially when my wife asked for a ceme brulee oatmeal which is not on menu. Her sister had it once, and hostess said we could have one specially made the next day. Everything was terrific!!!

This was a dinner served poolside in conjunction with a Luau. It was supposed to be a Luau type meal. It was terrible. The meat was dry, dry, dry. Inedible. We left our plates nearly untouched and went to Dukes for edible food. Such a waste of money. Don't go.

The fruit was amazing, Pineapple with chili lime sweet and savory. Potato... More

We stayed at the Marriott on whose grounds this restaurant occupies pool-side, and ate there every day for their breakfast buffet, and one evening dropped by for dessert. The breakfast buffet is pricey, $25.99 per person, but the food and service makes it worth it. They have an excellent omelette station and will create whatever omelette you want. They also... More

We were staying at the hotel where Kukui's is and, since it was my boyfriend's birthday, I thought it would be a nice dinner. It happened to be the same night as the "buffet" which they only have on Friday. We saw, later in the week, that this is also the only night that anyone eats here. For good reason.... More

We were so happy we had the breakfast package included in our hotel stay at the Marriott. The buffett was always so delicious. They changed up items so it didn't feel like we had the same food every morning. Kudos to the chefs for all the different variety to meet everyones taste buds & health craze needs. We ordered a...

If we were to return to the Marriott, we would probably take more of our meals at this restaurant. The staff are attentive. The food quality is very good.

The breakfast buffet was wonderful--a delightful Mothers' Day treat! There was a huge variety of food, but it was pricey.
